    Once one gets used to the ludicrous speed this game moves to, it can deliver a few hours of fun. Similar in lots of concepts but vastly inferior to James Pond 2, this is pure Amiga platforming...

    This game goes to show my own concept of mediocrity: Not a good game, but not one I regretted playing (in fact I even strongly considered buying it). Just another entry on the console's catalog.

    To be fair, Vectorman didn't impress me back in the day. It's visually fantastic, that's for sure, but I found it average play-wise. Then again given that they got compared for some reason - I share...

    I'm not sure, but this may be the last great MD game released back during its official lifespan: The guys at Traveller's Tales almost made me think I was playing a 2.5-D game. Technically brilliant...
